We hit a snag in our project: We've only got a few weeks till launch and the designer who was to make a skin for our product has not delivered the (very) goods. I took a stab at creating a skin for the product and it has some good ideas but also some issues. I'm not fond of the typography and I attempted to add some 3-dimensionality with the buttons but it's looking tacky.
I should mention that my design philosophy is to favor a mostly flat design but not in a fetishistic way; that is, I like flat design for its simplicity but not at the expense of usability. I like the use of a third dimension to enhance the experience, but not for decoration. I.e. I'm not trying to copy Metro.
I've attached one of the more representative menus on the app. Any graphic-oriented designers in here want to weigh in on possible font choices or fixes for the tacky buttons? Suggestions in general?
